My son came up to me while I was listening to "The Gates of Delirium" and complained "Dad, when is this song going to end?!"

"Soon!" I said.

Robert Fripp was accosted by a time-travelling male person whose body and clothing were covered in filthy, disgusting poo stains. He was asked by this fetid traveller, what approximate block of time should I set my travel device to visit if I want to experience a concert by the lineup of King Crimson with Jamie Muir in it?

Fripp responded. "20th century, shit-soiled man!"
